It is primarily designed to streamline Wizard-like interfaces and to select from a set of mutually exclusive, related choices. Complementary to command buttons, command links are used for navigation to other places. Links behave similar to buttons but have always a clean, lightweight appearance without stimulative nature. == Example == == Guidelines == === Is this the right control === * Use command links for a set of mutually exclusive responses like navigation from hub to spoke pages. * Do not present single command links. * Consider to use a [[Projects/Usability/HIG/Buttons|push button]] for single commands or if the action does not contain navigation. === Behavior === * Provide feedback when result is not aware to user or not available instantaneous. Display a busy pointer or present a progress bar to users. * Do not mix command links and command buttons at one place. === Appearance === * Command links are flat. * Use standard theme color for links. * Always apply an icon to command links. * Icons should have a size of 48x48 pixels. * Choose a concise, self-explanatory label that clearly communicates and differentiates what the command link does. * Do not use ellipsis. == Implementation == [[Category:Usability]][[Category:Behavior]][[Category:Viewing_and_Navigation]][[Category:Access_functions]] Template used on this page: Template:Moved To Community (view source) Return to Projects/Usability/HIG/Command Link.
